Her work has been shown at many exhibitions in Europe, such as the Louvre Museum in Paris, PROGR in Bern as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art and the ZachÄ™ta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

She is the author of photography series: Bryla street residents,  Non-central Warsaw as well as two books: Paris-Varsovie 24 heures sans arrêt and Restaurant.

Using documentary photography, Staniszewska is able to construct poetry out of everyday life. She is interested in the analysis of urban tissue and the environment and lives of city-dwellers.
